Nice little self guided tour through this large house now turned into a museum. Has a hodgepodge of many different subjects. Great view of the mountains from multiple large windows.

The woman at the front desk was very uncomfortable with young children. Children need to be capable of understanding "don't touch." Had a wonderful time at tea, but also not for children until they are old enough to sit fairly still for an hour.

The girls enjoyed the tea and service. The were being quite silly by the time we were finished! The staff was nice and the girls enjoyed being pampered.

I don't even know where to begin. So much history and a knowledge overload. The Castle has been elaborately restored and is still undergoing renovations. Amazing piece of history. The tribute to our firefighters was incredible. Loved tea with my 2 favorite girls as well.

This place is stuffed to the brim with antiques and artifacts, and has a really neat history. It was a short walk from our hotel (Cliff House), and we really enjoyed wandering through the museum.
